Austin Peay State University GovernorsCape Girardeau, MO – Southeast Missouri may be off to a 0-6 start but Austin Peay State University knows all too well how difficult a challenge the Redhawks pose.

A year ago, the Redhawks finished 7-23 overall and 3-15 in the Ohio Valley Conference. But both games the Governors and SEMO played ended in overtime, with the Governors slipping out with victories each time in posting an 11-7 OVC mark.

Despite the winless start, the Redhawks seemingly are on track of becoming competitive once again in the OVC. Recently, SEMO traveled to Arkansas and played the Razorbacks to within 10 on the road.
